Can't believe that a week has passed since I last seriously only feels like yesterday.

Thank you to everyone who left a comment, called or emailed me to wish Andrew and I a Happy Anniversary. We didn't get to do anything as Andrew was working to 10pm but he did surprise me with a beautiful bunch of flowers that were delivered during the day.

Since last Friday it's been busy busy here. Saturday was the exception though as the girls and I just bummed around at home. Sunday Mum picked Caitlin up and took her to the farm (Castlemaine) to pick up an old school desk that Aunty Kate has done up for her. Just after they left here Dunk and Wendy called in on their way home from Woodend. Andrew, Gigi and I took Dunk up to the Airplane Viewing car park up at the back of the airport as it is something he has wanted to do for a long time. I don't know who was more excited...Dunk getting to watch the planes fly right over the top of us or Gigi who sat in the boot of Daddy's car eating the soft serve that Uncle Dunk had bought for her.

Monday and Tuesday was spent doing house work and getting on top of the washing that I didn't do over the weekend. Yesterday Georgia had kinda so I thought I would race home and quickly vac the rumpus room (the only room in our house that has carpet) and then sit down and scrap before having to go back and pick her up in three hours time. Well things didn't go quite according to plan. I plugged the vac in to the power point and turned it on, but all I got was a heap of sparks flying out of the vac followed by a mass of smoke. Now I now it is only a vacuum cleaner, but I love this thing and he even had a name...Bertie Bosch! Berite cost me just over $600 about 2 years ago and I have loved him ever since. So on the phone I get to Muirs (where we bought it from) who give me the number for Bosch. I call Bosch who then give me the number for our local Bosch repairer, who tells me that his wife is on holidays and she makes all the appointments so can I call back in 2 weeks. 2 weeks...does this man understand the amount of crap that can accumulate on one's rumpus room floor when you have 2 kids and a dog? I can't wait 2 weeks...that's insane. So for the time being I have borrowed and old vac from my mother in-law that is probably the great-great-great-great grandfather of Bertie Bosch and hence has the power that you would expect from and 100 year old plus man...NONE!
Looks like Bertie is on his way to heaven and I am in search of a new best friend.

In better news my brand spanking new treadmill arrived yesterday and in the tradition of naming things in this house we have called him Jethro. I LURVE Jethro in all his newness and shininess and he was a nice end to an otherwise bad day.

That's it for me for today. I have my FIL's surprise 65th birthday party on Saturday and finally get to see two new bubba's (Oscar and Ella). Hope everyone is having a good week. Till next time....

RIP Berty Bosch!

I'm sick. Tell Andrew I want flowers too!

(especially given my OWN husband never buys them for me)
